confederate flags. "the new york times" reported in that meeting that a considerable section in the seats was devoted to denouncing the 1964 civil rights act. and any review that says that the only key issues in thurmond's career for constitutionalism and national security, i don't think can be taken, i don't think that passes the laugh test. of what we all know about strom thurmond and his career. so i was disappointed that "the wall street journal" felt that this man, let a close relationship with thurmond had been employed by thurmond, he admits that in the review, but then talks about that he was the best person to evaluate the book for the readers. i thought that was disappointing. >> he had no knowledge of what was being done at the time, that edwards, that was going to be, they didn't tell you ahead of time? >> no. >> that he was going to be the person? >> no. >> you have any other papers like the new times or anything -- >> there were no other reviews to the "washington post," washington monthly, if you google "strom thurmond's america" you will find some. and you should google it

. no early voting in new jersey and new york, the states hardest hit so you had the week before, in other states you might have -- in north carolina significant number of the electorate already voted. so in both states ex-if if you cast a provisional ballot, it doesn't count at all. fortunately the state at the last minute had executive orders that opened that up. but how much education they were able get to out when people were just trying to unbury their lives and didn't have electricity and power. so allowing people who cast provisional ballots would have provided more flexibility, understanding ahead of time so people knew they could have gone to another precinct and voted and haste count. we want people to have their ballots counted but it wasn't able to get back to that location, so look at ways to expand the ability of people to vote and other options. expanding the way you vote permanently and looking how you inform people about the polling locations and ways -- text-messaging, or other -- that clearly broke down. >> for me, the problem with the electoral college. my job is to get

. and there's already article. a "new york times" article today about michael cooper about what will happen with the gun debate. we've had sorts of stories written after abby gifford was shot. it seems like something has changed but maybe it's because of the moral obscenity that it's so past anything conceivable. and so, i wanted to trace for a moment, as we're thinking about where the white house is going to be on the. everyone is talking about the president, where the president has been in the past. what the trajectory of his stance on this issue is. he's moved in one direction and quite directionally without much wavering back and forth. as a young politician he was in the area of the country with some of the strictest gun safety regime in the country and incredible political constituency for that. he was a strong advocate. in 1996, when running for state senate illinois when asked, do you support legislation to ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns and he answered, yes." later a staff in 2007 of his campaign told politico a staff member had answered that question for him
for us. in the spring we experienced late freezes in michigan and new york and pennsylvania that wiped out fruit crops. a lot of small family farms, farms in northern michigan wiped out. in my home state late freezes in the spring caused cherry producers to lose practically their entire crop right off the bat. it warmed up, the buds came out, then they had a deep freeze; killed everything. our growers produce 75% of the u.s. supply of cherries. that's around 270 million pounds. and the cherry producers experienced 98% loss. now in our amendment, in the disaster bill and in the farm bill, we give them some help because they spent the rest of the crop year this year having to pay to maintain the orchards and the frees, eating the costs and hoping the trees will bounce back next year and produce a crop. so they have all the costs of maintaining everything but no revenue coming in. cherry producers were also forced to fight spreading diseases like cherry leaf spot and bacterial tinker, making the trees even more costly to maintain and at risk of loss. they didn't just lose their crop this
was interesting. he ended his last speech at the economic club of new york, i believe, by saying if we could just get past what is ultimately a stupid debate. >> right. >> there's some momentum here. and quite frankly for a lot of us in the market, we'd like to move past this. >> do you expect, however, while we fight for this fiscal cliff baloney, do you expect the market selloff? >> sure. >> today notwithstanding, but it finished well off the lows today. >> as jackie talked about, it's up for the week. for the month. i think there's still a modest positive gain. what's interesting in this debate is the two previous times we've increased capital gains, nixon in 1970 and reagan, of course, with the tax reform act of '86. the december preceding the adjustment, the stock market was down. december 1969, december 1986. i don't think people have believed they wouldn't get a deal. when we talked about we're going over the cliff after the election, i think we were the only ones in some level, at least prominence in the ability of coming on your show. we were the only ones saying that could happen. >> ca
to helping new jersey and certainly new york as well and the region, recovered. because you know, when we had hurricane katrina in the gulf coast in mississippi and alabama and louisiana, i was there. when we had tornadoes in joplin missouri, i was there. when we had flooding along the mississippi, i was there. when we had crop destruction in the midwest, i have been there because i believe this is the united states of america. and so i fully expect that now that for the first time we have a type of devastation that other should understand and we are going to have to type a response that others have to see. so i would like to get a sense of view as the type of commitment this administration has. >> senator, thank you for the eloquent remarks about this. as you know, this is a region i too have roots in. to use your term, i married up, i married a jersey girl and work in new jersey and new york and besides the personal commitment i feel, i have also seen a president who was on the ground, in new jersey and almost immediately has done everything he can to help in the short term and has given me
and get some of the bad news. a team that is really fun to watch is the new york jets. coach ryan has a problem. he has three quarterbacks, sanchez, tim tebow, and a guy by the name of mcelroy. he cannot decide who their quarterback is going to be. that is the same problem the republicans are having. romney is gone, but he still in the background. we have mcconnell and we have the honor. who is the quarterback, mr. president? -- we have mcconnell and we have boehner. who is the quarterback, mr. president? we just had an election. the people overwhelmingly know why we have this debt. the polling right before the election showed that the vast majority of the american people realize that the debt was caused by george bush. that is a fact. mr. president, we have another judge report coming out tomorrow here we have a little problem because of what happened with hurricane sandy. but we will still have about 100,000 new jobs. we are approaching about 4 million jobs now that have been created. that does not merely make up for what was lost during the bush years, but we are making progress. p
bus a deal ever getting done. alison kosik at the new york stock exchange. >> already down for the dow 117 points. kinding seeing a shift in attitude. if you see what's happening over the last few weeks wall street has been banking on a deal and you can see that in how stocks performed. the s&p 500 is up over the past month. guess what? now wall street is nervous, one analyst says this plan b vote was a litmus test for congress's ability to work out a solution. the way wall street sees it now this is a sign of gridlock. the s&p pa 00 is up 15% so just to put that in perspective, get ready for a tough friday so it's hardly time to panic. the sell-off won't last through the end of the day so they're more optimistic. >> could a sell-off influence washington to get something done? >> a sell-off could be a wake-up call for congress, just out playing chicken with the economy and it has worked before. you look at 2008, stock sold off after the house initially rejected a bank bailout. congress came around and passed it. it may take a direct hit to give lawmakers a kick in the butt especially s
